Summer camps for 2021 are currently being planned for both in-person and online options. However, due to safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, NYFA will be unable to offer housing for in-person teen camps. Families will need to secure their own housing for campers and provide any necessary off-campus supervision, if traveling to a NYFA teen summer camp from another city, state or country. All after-school and weekend camps will be conducted online, until further notice. To view all camps and workshops offered, please click here.

Locations: New York City, Los Angeles, South Beach

Lights, camera, action! The New York Film Academy gives kids the chance to discover or hone their acting chops by getting real experience acting in front of the camera. Throughout their time at the summer acting for film camp, students will study fundamental acting techniques and practice them in front of their peers and the camera. By the end of camp, kids will gain a better understanding of the acting craft and the opportunity to showcase their own filmed monologues and scenes.

Our summer acting camp for kids is led by professional actors in TV, film, and stage. These passionate professionals transfer their real-world expertise to the net generation of actors.

During the two weeks, each camper will complete one filmed monologue and scene. Our innovative acting classes encourage kids to develop the techniques and confidence they need to create believable performances for the camera. Campers apply what they learn to on-camera exercises designed to encourage their screen acting ability.

At the end of camp, student work is celebrated with a screening open to friends and family, and students leave camp with a copy of their work.

Building on the foundation of our acting for film camps, 2-Week Acting for Film II Camps investigate performing in a more in-depth production. Campers prepare two contrasting monologues and one complex scene, a challenge that further develops their acting skills as they explore new techniques.

Classes are project-based, and kids learn to apply specific acting techniques and exercises to their monologues or scenes for the camera. Upon successful completion of each camp, students receive a copy of their work.
